Thieves attacked a man when they broke into a property in Watford before fleeing with rings and a watch.

Hertfordshire Constabulary is investigating the robbery, which happened in Wellstones around 8.30pm on Saturday, January 22.

The force says several people had forced their way into an address before assaulting a man in his 20s who was inside.

They then stole items from the address including an 18ct Submariner Rolex watch, a white gold star-shaped diamond ring, two further white gold rings, and several pairs of designer trainers.

Police believe the thieves left the area in a white or silver Mercedes or BMW, which was waiting in the car park off Wellstones before it was driven the wrong way down the one-way street.

Detectives have recently acquired images of three men they would like to identify as part of their investigation.

Detective Constable Debbie West, who is investigating, said: “We have recently acquired these CCTV images as part of our ongoing investigation and while we appreciate that they’re not of great quality, we owe it to the victim to explore every line of enquiry.

“If you recognise the stance or the clothing of anyone pictured, or you have any further information you believe could be useful to police, then please get in touch as soon as possible.”
